From "Marvex the super robot" to the Metal Men to the Sentinels, robots have been a prevalent theme in comic books and science fiction. Historically, robots and androids have been depicted as both loyal servants (Rosie the Robot) and/or metallic menaces (Ultron). In this session, moderator Steve Broback (Tweet House, Parnassus Group) joins Brian David Johnson (resident futurist at Intel), Jennifer Barry (Rethink Robotics), Jason Crusan (director, Advanced Exploration Systems Division at NASA), Ross Ingram (community manager for Sphero), and none other than Brent Spiner (known as the beloved android Commander Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation) to survey and demonstrate our coming robot reality, what the next few years hold in store, and how it reflects on the futures depicted by the pop culture robots and androids of our time.
